Peer Review Policy

The Henry James Review encourages the diversity of critical biographical, archival, and creative work being done in Henry James studies. In addition to insightful essays, every issue contains book reviews having to do with the field. Electronic submissions generally (though not exclusively) between 8,000 15,000 words  are to be sent to The author’s name, mailing address, and title of the article must be included in the text of the email. The manuscript should use current MLA style and include any endnotes, works cited, and an abstract of 100 or fewer words. Authors' names do not appear on the manuscript submission, nor should authors refer to themselves in the first person in the submitted text or notes if such references would identify them.  The submission must be original work that has not previously been published and must not under consideration elsewhere.  An initial internal review is completed to determine whether to send the manuscript to readers.  Manuscripts undergo blind referee review and are judged upon the manuscript's contribution to Henry James studies and familiarity with past scholarship on Henry James. Revise and resubmit decisions may be determined, in which case the revised manuscript is considered again for possible publication. The submission review process takes approximately two months, and accepted articles are usually published within a year.

Book reviews are assigned by the book review editor.
